Wonderful stay
We stayed at Benguela for one night as my husband was going on a shark diving excursion in nearby Gansbaai. The b&b was perfect for what we needed with a lovely, bright room and comfortable room. We didn’t have dinner although wish we had as it sounded amazing! Jonathan and his partner was very welcoming, and the delicious breakfast in bed was a lovely touch and definitely something I’ll remember for a long time.

Melhor impossível. Excelente custo benefício.
Somos um casal de meia idade com dois filhos, e viajamos em família duas vezes por ano há 13 anos. O apartamento tem uma decoração de bom gosto, é limpo, confortável e espaçoso. Na minha unidade havia dois quartos com muitos armários novos e dois grandes banheiros, um para cada quarto. Havia uma excelente cozinha dentro do apartamento, bem equipada e com tudo o que alguém necessita para cozinhar um belo jantar. O proprietário é uma pessoa muito simpática e atenciosa. Acredito que o custo benefício dessa hospedagem foi o melhor de toda minha vida.
